Project Description

The objectives of this project were firstly to assess changes in the knowledge, attitudes and practices (KAP) of female garment factory workers (GFW) towards reproductive, maternal and neonatal health (RMNH) from the baseline indicators in the Monitoring, Evaluation, Reporting and Improvement (MERI) framework. Secondly, to determine the exposure and participation of garment factory workers (GFW) in the BCC and Chat! Contraceptive campaign activities, and any effects on MERI indicators and lastly to gather qualitative information about the effectiveness of PSL in achieving its objectives and outcomes.

Angkor Research staff conducted the research design, sampling methodology, instrument review and translation, data collection/oversight, and data entry and cleaning services for these surveys with over 900 women of reproductive age working in the garment factories receiving PSL interventions. To strengthen and illuminate the findings from this quantitative component, Angkor Research also conducted qualitative interview with factory infirmary staff as well as focus group discussions with survey respondents.
